B&C has partnered with attention and conversion analytics company iSpot.tv to bring you a weekly chart we call Promo Mojo: exclusive data showing the top five TV promos ranked by TV ad impressions. These are the shows networks have been promoting most heavily to drive tune-in (our data covers the seven-day period through Feb. 18).
For the fourth week in a row, NBC grabs the top spot on our chart with its promos for, you guessed it, the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics, which racked up just over 473 million TV ad impressions over seven days. And NBC has been wisely leveraging its massive audience for the Games by airing lots of promos for its upcoming programming — specifically new musical-drama Rise (set to premiere March 13) at No. 2, new crime comedy-drama Good Girls (Feb. 26) at No. 3 and the latest season of The Voice (also Feb. 26), with new coach Kelly Clarkson, at No. 4.
The one non-NBC show in our top five: TNT’s The Alienist, which scores the highest iSpot Attention Index (137) in our ranking, getting 37% fewer interruptions than the average promo (interruptions include changing the channel, pulling up the guide, fast-forwarding or turning off the TV).
